Hi there! I love your tri work! For women- having toned tri's takes a lot of dedication and work but makes a ton of difference especially in comp! I love me some skullcrushers! Get's the job done!

 

I love that you save room for a nice treat (the lemon cookie)- I always like to have something to look forward to like that. You really look forward to it and savor it!

 

Hope your stomach is on board with your training plans today and you're feeling great! Have a wonderful Friday!

So today started out fantastic but by lunchtime turned to pot. No gym time today although I did make it to the gym for yoga but couldn't leave daycare stranded with no one to sit with the kids so I volunteered.

 

Breakfast

8 oz green monster

1 packet instant maple raisin oatmeal

 

Snack

1/2 cinnamon oatmeal

 

Lunch

5 roasted brussels sprouts

1 potato cut into wedges and baked

8 apsaragus spears roasted

1 serving lentil vegetable soup

 

Probably to much food but I was really hungry. Needless to say the pain and nausea set in. I did go to the emergency room where I was actually treated better but still got the same results none.... The doctor was stumped but gave me a referral to see a GI doctor at least. Just hope we can work out payment arrangements........ Tomorrow come hell or high water I will eat a cinnamon roll, do turbo kick AND get my leg workout in! Hell I might even throw in some bicep and shoulder!!Got me some different nausea meds and a pain pill not that I really want them but if it means keeping food down I will do it.

Mind doesn't control the body. It can guide it, but the body has the last word. So listen. . . . .

Fitness isn't just about doing exercises, and making your body do things it doesn't want to do. It is about listening and getting to know your body. Knowing what it is capable of, and using the mind to figure out ways to safely get there (guiding it).

Does your comment sounds like you are listening to your body and safely getting it there?

I did listen to it today and cardio didn't make it happy so I slowed it down and it was happy. I waited till evening to do my weights and once I did the first rep it was happy. I don't think I pushed myself to hard but I did a good workout.

Amanda I will totally keep you posted! It is just hard slowing down because last year I was go go go go. Like I said though as long as I eat soft bland foods I do pretty darn good with my tummy which makes me feel strong so I can hit the gym and do what my body will let me. Gaia trust me girl I am listening to you and pushing myself harder than my body will let me go

I just want you to listen to your body. I do like how you go to workout and then if your body is not doing so well you don't just give up, but back off the intensity. You are listening to your body! Good! Good! Now if the GI expert can find out what is making you sick when you eat, then you can tackle that next!

Hi Nancy! How's the tummy feeling? Looks like you're doing better which is so awesome!

 

This workout is impressive, even though you might not be as happy with it! Two 55 minute classes and you lifted?

 

Are you lifting after or before cardio? Legs are a large body part to work- so to give them a good workout, focus on that and give it your all- do some cardio after if you have energy still. Not doing cardio on leg days is ok too- I used to feel like I was sinning if I didn't do cardio, but with leg days being intense it's ok. Let me know what you think!

 

Keep up the awesome work! xo

Oh yes those are my warm ups to my leg workouts...i know I shouldnt. They are done before my leg workout. It is hard to do my weight training before cardio cause I dont get off early enough. But doing this I found I focus on my weight training better.

2 slices toasted french bread w/ EVOO and garlic powder
2 packets cream of wheat
8 crackers

All WHEAT/GLUTEN! Why do you do this to yourself? You know the outcome. And yes, all of those taste darn yummy, BUT. . . !

You may have a gluten intolerance now, but if you keep this up, you will end up with celiac disease. You need to let whatever is wrong heal up inside. Everytime you have a bout of sickness, damage is being done. And then there is the inflammation that gets out of hand, and that can even cause of more damage. There is a point of no return/repair with this.

 

Go and look for Cream of Brown Rice, Spelt bread (low gluten - which may or may not be tolerated), and Rice crackers instead. Many people have a wheat intolerance, as do I, and there are many options that are wheat-free now (just have to look at the labels though, as many use eggs as the protein binder for the baked good).

 

You have begun to learn what to eat as a vegan as you made a conscious choice to not eat animal and animal products for either a moral or health point of view. Now you need to learn what to eat that your body reacts badly to, from a health point of view, and be conscious of it - get passed the denial part . . . quickly.

 

(Denial as in - oh that looks good, and my tastebuds are just salivating at the thought of tasting that delicious food. oh I can just have it this just one more time. I know it will bloat me or make my tummy feel achy, but it will be worth just to taste it. And you devour it, and feel all yummy inside as it passes the tastebuds. Then in less than an hour, your tummy starts to protest and you play all stupid by not knowing why it is acting up at all. it was just 2 little crackers. just 2 little garlic toasts. and just two little packets of cream of wheat. why are you doing this to me body? and you know why. then your mind tells the body that it wasn't all that bad. and that you don't have a problem. well you do, but it is just a little inconvenience. but you know it isn't. this is denial talking).

1 oz low salt lays.....

don't even get me started on this! you already know this as bad as you put . . . . . . after it.

 

My rant to you is over now. I know somewhere inside of you, the little angel on the one shoulder is telling all of this. I just want to be the choir for that little angel, so as to drown out the sweet seductions of the little red devil on your other shoulder that has your tastebuds for its choir.

Don't worry Lay's are gone, french bread finished off, didn't have any cream of wheat left. HOWEVER the crackers are still a full box and I refuse to waste open product. I went to many years wishing for food to eat to waste now if I can help it. Yes the lil angel on my shoulder was scolding me..... I didn't have a tummy problem today, think it was to darn cold to complain lol. Started soaking another batch of beans for tortilla soup! I plan on making my own tortillas for this too. Gaia I lived in denial for soooo long I know it very well and hate it. I know I still have a long way to go on getting my diet completely lined out.

A lovely work in progress! Especially your weights! And I dread the cardio equipment also (treadmills, elliptical, stairmaster especially). I hope we have an early spring, so when I have to go all out cutting/dieting, I am hoping that the outside will be nice, and my cardio can be something on the trail near my house!

I went through my pantry and pulled out a box of whole wheat pasta noodles and wheat couscous that hadn't beenopened and put them in the Harvester's barrel at Starbucks this morning. I no longer have any wheat products except some pearled barley that I got from a bulk bin at the store.... been finding all kinds of recipes on Pinterest that are vegan and gluten free that I can't wait to try.

Sometimes if you have an intolerance, you can have something every once in awhile (I think the data says every 4th day - something about the immune system attacking something and then having 3 days of cleansing to get rid of it, and then you can have it again without the immune system continuously attacking).

 

You did really good today (though I hope you made your vegetable bean soup, because some manufacturer's put wheat in their soup to make it creamier). I do not know what you did on Thursday, but Wednesday you had alot of wheat, so it is 3 days. You might have a little bit of trouble since it is not known what you ate on Thursday, and it is not yet 4 days between eating something with wheat in it.

 

Good Luck! May the seconds of enjoyment on your tongue, bring you enough happiness, to get you thru the troubles the day may bring.

(You can still support local business by buying the cinnamon rolls and giving them away to your friends who don't have wheat troubles)
